November 10th, 11am-4pm
Horticulture Building at Lansdowne
Kersplebedeb and PM Press will be tabling at the 6th Annual Feminist Fair, happening Sunday November 10th at the Horticulture Building at Landsdowne, 11am to 4pm. As the organizers of the Fair explain:
First and foremost this event takes place on unceeded, unsurrended Algonquin Territory:
We stand together as feminists on this unceded and unsurrended Algonquin Anishinaabe Territority. We pay our respects to the land that still remembers the First Peoples and holds the memories of the atrocities committed against them; and like the land, we remember. We acknowledge our sisters in spirit who stood here before us and the legacy of resilience that we carry, with respect and humbleness.

This event is a vendor’s craft market, fundraiser, and showcase for several non-profit organizations. It is ALL AGES, pay what you can (no one turned away for lack of funds!), with proceeds going to local feminist initiatives! More info to come! Event poster is by the lovely Scatterbee.
Some things you can expect from our vendors include buttons, pins, patches, jewelry, clothing, bags, books, zines, prints, art, donuts, plants, and more! Come support local artists! In addition to vendor tables, there will also be tables promoting the work done by local non profits & grassroots organizations. It is a great opportunity to learn more about some of the work done to support womxn and queer folks in Ottawa.
